Head to the tranquil streets of East-Beirut’s commercial streets where a collage of traditional French and Ottoman homes collide to create the famous Achrafieh district. Amongst the concrete jungle of these war-torn buildings and modern architecture are Ashekman’s urban canvases.
The artistic duo —Mohammed and Omar Kabbani, began their journey on the streets of Beirut in 2001. Two street artists with a wild passion for Arabic graffiti, calligraphy, rap, and streetwear. Proud of their heritage and language, the Art-obsessed twins have been reviving their rich culture and roots through their love of art across all platforms.
